Los Angeles (July 21, 2021)
GRAMMY-nominated Hillsong Young & Free has released its newest single “Phenomena (DA DA)” alongside an accompanying lyric visual and live performance video. Recorded in front of a live audience, “Phenomena (DA DA)” encapsulates the feverous energy of a crowd on fire for God’s love. Hard-hitting and melodically anthemic, with a rap interlude, the new track proclaims, “You’ve given me Your vision/ Better than a dream/ You ain’t gotta wake me up/ It’s not a fantasy.”
Set against an enthusiastic, pulsing crowd, the live performance visual and high-energy track deliver the boundary-pushing, classically-contemporary sound Hillsong Young & Free has made their signature.
“‘Phenomena!’ or also known as ‘da da da da da da,’ is a song that gets into your head and into your heart,” says Hillsong Young & Free’s Laura Toggs. “It’s a statement song about the true reality we have in Jesus.”
Hillsong Young & Free’s latest single follows the group’s most recent release of the acoustic version of their hit album, ALL OF MY BEST FRIENDS. The original full-length project that released in August 2020 earned the group a 2021 GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Album and marked their second career nomination. Since its debut, ALL OF MY BEST FRIENDS has garnered more than 45M global streams and over 13M combined YouTube views.
